    well, I have a x800 GTO a from gecube (r430 chipset core) (on agp bus, with 128 mb ram), I was hopping that this card will work witx x86 OSX, with qe and cl enabled (full mac acceleration), but it seems that it is not working..... bad for me -think that I have give up to a 6800 GV-N68128DH from gigabyte - for this card, but, from what I have read in other forums, it is possible at least to increase the refresh mode for vesa by modify the bios. At this point i use my card at 1280x1024 at 60 hz. I want to change this to 1280x1024 at 75 or 85 hz (I repeat, I speak about vesa refresh rate). My monitor support this refresh rate, so I ask, how to do that ?

    If it is possible, please, I need an advice, it is for the first thime when I have a ati card, and I have no ideea from where to start . What utiliy do I need, what steps I have to perform, etc. What is strage, is the wiky for osx x86 it is say that x800 is supported on most of the part, but not for maybe a bios from other videocards , any sugestion, etc ?


    Ps. Sorry for my english, and I hope to receive a reply.

    Tanks !

    In your case it was not a good idea to buy ATI card. ATI cards are best fow MS Windows and X86 platforms. Any other use needs a lot of work.
